Lanxess Corporation in Orange, Texas was in need of a better bearing protector for their Flender KMPS planetary gearbox. They were having problems with both ingress of water and contamination as well as the egress of lubrication getting past the lip seals used by the manufacturer. This planetary drive gearbox is a vital component in their process, so this payload machine could not afford much down time.
Isomag was specified into this application by Lanxess to hold in the forced circulated lubrication, as well as keep the water out of the housing in 2015. What was once an issue that showed signs after 6-8 months, the Isomag bearing isolators have been leak free for 3 years and counting.
